Our story begins in August 2002, (queue flashback music)… My wife and I honeymooned in London and each night did a little pub crawl of our own, going to different parts of London, hanging out and drinking pints. A couple of nights while we were there, soccer was on TV, there was this team with a odd name, called Arsenal on the TV. We watched a couple of matches that week, had some pints and fun, finished the honeymoon flew back to the States and never thought twice about it… Now flash-forward (queue music), Summer / Fall 2010… 8 years...

Brand new Spurs supporter from Cincinnati, OH, USA. 31 years of age. I apologize right away for being new, for being a yank and for my use of American English. I played football growing up until my knees were in too poor of shape to continue. I’ve always had love for the game, but until recently my circumstances had made it difficult to follow anything beyond international competitions and MLS. Thankfully all of that has changed. American television networks are making an increased commitment to football, and now I can get pretty much any game that matters on TV at... Read more »

Ohtaek, South Korea

Greetings to The Fighting Cock! Hi lads, this is Ohtaek Kwon(read O-TEK) from South Korea, Seoul. Just wanted take part in the International Spurs fans of mystery.

James, USA

This is the routine I followed in NYC. Festivities start the night before kickoff. Usually I meet up with Norf, Q, and Trust and we visit our local pub in Brooklyn. We stay there and sexually harass everything with a pulse until we are asked to leave (or one of us pulls) – that usually happens around midnight. We then take the train to China town to visit NYCs best Karaoke bar, Baby Grand, owned by fellow NYSpur, Vid. There we usually run into a few of the other NYSpurs Characters – RoyRadics, Muswell, IrishDave, ThisGuy, NewGuy, Jade, Criszac, and... Read more »

Poi, China

My name is Poi and I like Tottenham. The last time I got to see my beloved team was the pre-season wembley cup a while back. We lost to Celtic, That was my goodbye, thanks guys, I’m off to China. Since then I’ve spent the last year and a half in China and South East Asia, luckily everyone around here is obsessed with football so it’s always a good talking point. I’ve been trying to think of the most interesting stories of how I’ve kept up with spurs and this is what I have. In order: – Arriving at our... Read more »

Colin, USA

Hey all, My name’s Colin and I’m from Saint Louis, MO, USA. My routine surrounding watching Spurs hasn’t always been the same but its somewhat interesting (to me at least). I got into the Premier League around 2004 through a high school friend who was a Celtic/Werder Bremen fiend. He suggested I start with English football based on my personality I suppose – intense, fast paced, full of drama but not like Italian drama. I feel stupid for typing that sentence but anyway, one of the first few games I saw was the 4-5 against the scum. Its ridiculous but... Read more »

Dr Oyvind, Australia

Boys, As much as I wish I could get to the Lane regularly (ever) living in Melbourne is a real ball drag on that one. You might be able to get a tube, a bus or even walk, I’d have a 20 hour flight each way that would set me back the better part of two grand, whatever that is in your money. So watch as much as I can on tele, which in itself means a $1,200 a year subscription to get Foxtel, the only place I can get games (at least they’re in HD). The only good bit... Read more »

Matt, USA

Responding to the habits of the foreign support towards the beloved lilywhites, as being only a poor student most of my weekends in pursuit of match feeds is through online feeds or going with friends to the “British” pub that are located here in San Antonio, Texas where I currently reside and attend graduate school. My finances are pathetic, but my love of the shirt cannot be measured by any worldly means. When I was working at a Boy Scout camp in New Mexico during the summer 2010, I learned that the mighty Spurs were playing in San Jose, California.... Read more »
